The Power of business trip

I was wondering why most of my ideas were coming when I am in the plane, behind the wheel of my car or in my hotel room. I read recently that a knowledge worker is interrupted every 3 minutes on average (see articles May I have your attention please? and Worker, Interrupted: The Cost of Task Switching ). in the office, we are constantly switching from a task to another being interrupted by emails, phone calls, questions colleagues are asking, meetings … So no wonder that the best place to think is the end of the day or when you are travelling.
